Remove CDP 2.0 cPanel integration

Sunday, June 19th, 2011

A handy feature of R1Soft CDP Server 2.0 (now known as Enterprise Edition) is that it can integrate with cPanel so that your users can restore their own files from your backups using a self service interface. If you want to remove this integration for any reason, then R1Soft provide a BASH shell script to do this for you:

/usr/lib/buagent/control-panels/cpanel/remove-cpanel-integration.sh

This script doesn’t always work for one reason or another, so the other way of doing this is to manually call the cPanel plugin uninstaller:

/usr/local/cpanel/bin/unregister_cpanelplugin /var/cpanel/registered_cpanelplugins/righteousbackup

This is particularly helpful if you forgot to uninstall the cPanel integration before upgrading to R1Soft CDP 3.0 or thought that the r1soft-uninstall-buagent utility would do it for you when removing the R1Soft CDP 2.0 agent (unfortunately it doesn’t, but it does helpfully remove the remove-cpanel-integration.sh script).

Unfortunately the cPanel integration in R1Soft CDP 3.0 is severely lacking compared to R1Soft CDP 2.0 and in my opinion is virtually useless in it’s current form.

As the control panel integration system is a pretty new feature in R1Soft CDP 3.0 (it was missing entirely from the initial release), hopefully it will be bolstered in subsequent R1Soft CDP 3.0 releases to restore it to the same level of functionality as was formerly available in R1Soft CDP 2.0.
